A town full of morons.....No,really!

Kicking cyclist, walkers and runners off of city roadways is how this town made itself "safer".

Really a nazi accusation over cycling? Just when I think it can't get any more annoying in here.

:::facepalm:::

Anyone for some heavy duty civil disobedience??


BTW Slim, gotta agree with the "Third Reich" comment being a bit much. These city planners are clearly idiotic suck-monsters but Nazi references are too easy and too inaccurate IMHO. I would like to see their planners reduced to a task fitting their "skills" like road kill removal specialist or crossing guard. Well, scratch the latter. Entrusting anyone's safety to them maybe isn't such a hot idea...

Restrictions are for 'group' activities. Wonder how they define that.

"the town gets a lot of complaints about groups of people running down the middle of the road at night or taking up most of the road during the day, or bikers riding on the wrong side of the road."
